Students of the Year Fresno

Welcome to My Fundraising Page!

Feb 14, 2019

In November of 2017 my grandfather, Richard Tobin, was diagnosed with stage 4 large B-cell lymphoma. Three days later Chandler Jameson, the manager for LLS, contacted me and informed me of my first Student of the Year nomination. I knew it was a sign from the universe - a way to help. Throughout my first campaign my grandfather fought bravely against his disease. His clever humor never dried up and he never ceased to tell me stories about his accomplished, well-lived, and adventourous life. In May of 2018, after my first LLS campaign came to an end, my grandfaher passed away. There is nothing more I wish to do than honor his memory. Therefore, I have been blessed enough to have the opportunity to do so via participating once more this year - for him. My goal is to raise as much awareness and funds to hopefully save someone else's grandfather one day.

  • Donate goods or services for the LLS Student of the Year Grand Finale under my name (for more details contact me with the informaion I listed below) 

  • Share my message and goal with your own friends and family - social media works as well (i.e Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, text message, etc.)!

I wish to share this journey with you and ask you to support the battle against blood cancers alongside me. Your support will further fund research for new cures and aid patients and their families as they go through the fight of their life. I hope to raise $30,000 during my campaign (Feb. 12th-April 5th 2019). With your help my goal will be a reality by then!!   

I ask that you please not only support me, but cancer patients everywhere by standing behind my efforts to raise money and awareness. On the behalf of my grandfather, LLS, and cancer patients everywhere : Thank you! Every bit of support contributes to the bigger goal of beating blood cancer now! SOMEDAY IS TODAY TO TAKE ACTION! 

With Love, 

MadaLynn Rocha
